Come on... it was a great day for playing craps.

Next great day is coming Friday... 11-11-11 ... and I'm planning on a quick trip for the day just to shoot dice for... I hope... an 11 minute hand. You can make a lot of money in an 11 minute hand.

Reminds me of a great hand that a shooter had one time....

I used to time shooters, and this one player had a great hand and everyone was cleaning up. When he did 7-out I asked the dealer and players on my side of the table "how long do you think his roll lasted?" The dealer said 25 minutes. The four other players said between 25 and 30 minutes.

His actual time: 11 minutes.

this is why I question most reports about shooters "holding the dice for an hour" or "holding the dice for a half hour."

Anyway... just give me a couple of 11 minute hands.

I'm going to place 11 yo bets on eleven tables all set to simultaneously resolve at 11:11:11 on 11-11-11. It's a can't lose proposition!

If you win 11 simultaneous bets on different tables you will win on the free champagne alone!

Since I use the cross-sixes set, on Saturday 11-12-11 I am better off betting the yo and boxcars.

Following this line of reasoning, December 12, 2012 is going to be a great day for boxcars. Unless you have to run off to reset your Mayan calendar.

Played on 11-7 and had a nice roll on a cold table. Great point about rolls and time, Alan. And yep, I plan to find a table on 11-11-11!

Well, I didn't get anywhere close to a game of craps on 11/7/11 and won't on 11/11/11. I do plan to be in Biloxi on 11/16&17, so I hope there is good karma that carries over.

Ooops! Is mentioning "karma" another theological discussion? :-)

No.

But December 12th has been mentioned. That's the date of the most important religious holiday in Mexico. If you play craps on that day, god will surely punish you :P

Hmmm... for believers in the end of the world: might this be the day to take out that big marker and put it all on 12?

Sure, but what do you do when it hits? Party like there's no tomorrow?
